I am on my knees I lived my life like a rabid dog with a rage bound up like a loaded gun I lived a cretin life, no one could love oh, Anna but you showed me love Cause you gave me live like I'd never known like I's somebody who deserved your call When the war came 'round, you said you had to go to heal their wounds. I knew you'd heal their souls Oh I didn't want to say goodbye Oh why'd they have to take your life Oh, now there's a star that's shinging brighter than the rest © 2020 Joe Downer.

“Anna” Original Song by Joe Downer
Songwriting is limitless. The ability to expresses feelings and emotions, and to tell stories through song is why I’ve been drawn to music and songwriting for most of my life Anna is a story about an unnamed lowlife who’s world is changed by the love of one woman, Anna. When she shows him love like he’s never known, his world is turned upside down, and for the better. Then a war breaks out, and Anna’s heart compels her to sign up to help nurse the wounded. She sails off, and is killed while serving at the front, being a beacon of light, hope, and love, to those who are fighting. Upon hearing the news of her death, the man back home that she loved like no other pens these words in grief, pleading for her to return to him, all the while knowing he will never again see her. The impact we have on each other’s lives may never fully be known to us. But that impact can be far-reaching. You never know how one act of love can change someone’s life. -Joe
Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen Cover by Joe Downer
This is arguably one of Leonard Cohen’s most famous songs, and one that I get requests for quite frequently during my shows. Forever a classic, no matter how many times I sing it, this one will always be a favorite. -Joe www.joedownermusic.com @Joedownermusic
